Temporary traffic restrictions for public events

If you want to hold an event on the public highway, you'll need to apply for the relevant traffic restrictions to safely accomodate your event. Restrictions can include:

  • road closure
  • reversal of one-way traffic flow
  • suspension of one-way street
  • parking restriction
  • revocation of an existing parking restriction or traffic order

'The highway' means a road or street, verge, footway or pavement, public footpath, bridleway, restricted byway or byway open to all traffic.

See Guidance for those organising an event on, or affecting the public highway in Dorset.
